Crist Wants To Keep Drills Away From Floridas Coast

June 5th, 2008 by flanews

Higher gas prices have people at the pump and even some US Congressman considering the option of drilling off Floridas coast. Oil companies already drill 1-hundred 25 miles out at sea. Federal laws keep them from coming closer. One person who hasnt changed his tune about coastal drilling is Governor Charlie Crist. Crist said Floridas coast is the last place he wants to see drills.

Im opposed to it. You know the higher the price goes its certainly has to have an impact at some point in time, a lot of people talk about our country being more aggressive about notion drilling in other places. The last place I would like to see that happen is off the coast of Florida, said Crist.

If oil was found off the coast of Florida and drilling was allowed it would take at least eight years before it could be used.
